social media sharing

If you share an album set to facebook or printerest, there should always be a picture? Only a thumbnail? E.g.:

http://body-paint.at/fotos/15-babybauch/    share to facebook: a thumbnail is selected. Why this?
                                                                   share to printerest: no picture in the share-window!?

In the source file you have

<li class="social-bg share-page facebook"><a href="https://www.facebook.com/sharer/sharer.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fbody-paint.at%2Ffotos%2F15-babybauch&amp;title=Babybauch-Bodypaints+" target="_blank" title="Facebook"><i class="fa fa-fw fa-facebook"></i><span>Share</span></a></li>
    <li class="social-bg share-page pinterest"><a href="http://pinterest.com/pin/create/bookmarklet/?media=http%3A%2F%2Fbody-paint.at%2Ffotos%2F15-babybauch/photos%2FBabybauch-Bodypaint-0019.jpg&amp;url=http%3A%2F%2Fbody-paint.at%2Ffotos%2F15-babybauch&amp;is_video=false&amp;description=Babybauch-Bodypaints+" target="_blank" title="Pinterest"><i class="fa fa-fw fa-pinterest"></i><span>Pin It</span></a></li>

   
In the directory ...15-babybauch there is no folder photos and therefore not this picture. I have never a folder photos in an album set!
in the og: for facebook the same picture is stated:

<meta property="og:image" content="http://body-paint.at/fotos/15-babybauch/photos/Babybauch-Bodypaint-0019.jpg" />

2nd example: http://body-paint.at/fotos/10-ganzkoerper/

If I share this album set to facebook I get a picture. It is a thumbnail, but a very less quality than the thumbnail I can see on the homepage. (Of course you can see the same photo on the window share facebook taller.)
If I share on printerest, I have not a picture again.

Part of the source code of the page:

<li class="social-bg share-page facebook"><a href="https://www.facebook.com/sharer/sharer.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fbody-paint.at%2Ffotos%2F15-babybauch&amp;title=Babybauch-Bodypaints+" target="_blank" title="Facebook"><i class="fa fa-fw fa-facebook"></i><span>Share</span></a></li>
        <li class="social-bg share-page pinterest"><a href="http://pinterest.com/pin/create/bookmarklet/?media=http%3A%2F%2Fbody-paint.at%2Ffotos%2F15-babybauch/photos%2FBabybauch-Bodypaint-0019.jpg&amp;url=http%3A%2F%2Fbody-paint.at%2Ffotos%2F15-babybauch&amp;is_video=false&amp;description=Babybauch-Bodypaints+" target="_blank" title="Pinterest"><i class="fa fa-fw fa-pinterest"></i><span>Pin It</span></a></li>

   
Again I have not the folder photos in the album set. I have only an empty folder thumbnails.
og: for facebook

<meta property="og:image" content="http://body-paint.at/fotos/10-ganzkoerper/photos/Bodypainting_Farbornamentik_Outdoor_5691.jpg" />

The mail-sharing functions on Windows (7) with all parameters. On Asteroid 4.2 on my mobile I can see only the window with the email and the to:-field, but not with the stated subject and the body. Is this a problem of Asteroid?

Matt will have to address the other specifics, but the reason you don't see a photos/ folder in albums sets is that Lightroom's Publish Service doesn't output images to album sets, therefore no photos/  folders.

Re: social media sharing

Hi, in my main folder I have a subfolder photos, as I export it directly to my homepage from Lightroom. So when I share

http://body-paint.at/fotos

to facebook, I have a picture in the facebook sharing window. But in facebook itself I have the text and an empty frame! Is that an error by generating this site or an error in Facebook?

Re: social media sharing

When I share now http://body-paint.at/fotos to facebook, I have no picture in the facebook sharing window and no picture in facebook-posting itself. Why?

Re: social media sharing

perhaps because there are no photos on the page? the thumbnails shows are taken from the galleries within the autoindex folder and are not coming from the page itself.
You could try including an image in the block text.

Re: social media sharing

Here you have an example. In addition to the logo there is another image in the page body. When I share to facebook there is a picture in the share window, but not in facebook itself. You can see there an empty frame:

Re: social media sharing

how about a link to the page you're trying to share. The link in post 5 above goes to an autoindex page that has no picture on the page other than those drawn from the galleries within the autoindex folder for use in the index. Those images are not part of the page, they are sourced from another location.
